Comming Soon

I don't even know what to say. This sign went up across the street from my office in Mesquite, Texas. Seriously. I can't make this stuff up, folks.

I guess big trucks will be comming and going at all hours of the day and night. There goes the neighborhood.

Also comming soon to a photographer near and dear to you... a Canon 50D. Yes, I pulled the trigger on a camera upgrade this morning. Should be here middle of next week. I have no justification for this extravagance. Other than I got a nice tax refund. Well, that and 15 is a bigger number than 8. It's almost twice as big, in fact. Now I can print life-sized photos of Mindy without loss of resolution. Cool!

Here's something else that's been a little while in comming...

Amy of Whisperwood Cottage tagged me with a "Six Things About Me" meme. So now I'm playing along. She knew I'd comme around eventually.

I'll avoid the obvious stuff like I love Mindy, photography, hunting, etc. I figure if you've read my blog, you already know all that. But here are some things you might not know.

1. I had to Google to find out what a meme is!
2. I am often absent-minded or forgetful.
3. I am often absent-minded or forgetful.
4. I am allergic to Benadryl. That's an allergy medicine. Let that sink in for a minute.
5. I love a good margarita. On the rocks. Not too sweet. Salt on the rim.
6. Briefs.

Whew! Now it's your turn. These are the people I'm tagging...
1. Beth at Playin With The Paulsens!
2. Tracy at A Simple Country Life
3. Jan at Summer Sundays
4. Cher at The Texas Woman
5. Tricia at the domestic fringe
6. Brett at The Vintage Husband

Your mission, should you choose to accept it (and it's strictly optional, people), is to post six things about yourself, identify six new people, and let those people know they've been tagged. Oh... and link back to this post, if you don't mind. Now, you don't have to do any of this. No pressure! But if it's not too much trouble and it doesn't cramp your style, you're certainly invited to play along. Have fun!

And comme back and see me real soon!

You have no idea how quickly I was about to email you about your happy finger on the m key. I was certain you had boo-boo'd and not even seen it. Whew! I just didn't realize about Exxon comming soon.

You must really like Amy to play along. But, she is your Aggie sister, after all. And good for you for playing along! This has been very entertaining, honey! ~Mindy

Too funny! I catch that spelling stuff all the time!! It's like fingernails on a chalkboard!

Jealous about the camera!! Can't wait to see the photos you create with it!! :)

Thanks for sharing your 6 things!

Can a person really be allergic to Benadryl? What happens??

Anyway, so happy about your new camera. Very exciting!!! Can't wait to see the picts you take.

OK! This is my first time tagged so I'm giving it a try. If I mess up, someone please tell me. Also, I'm very jealous of your new camera. Someday, when I have a reeeeeaaaaly good month at the shop, I'm buying a new camera. Jan

LOL, love your absent-mindedness! (BTW, found you from Tricia!)

Tracy said...

Yeah, all that is true with what you said about the house and we are thinking, taking our time...
We have about decided the best thing to do would be build on the family land which my husband inherited (which was our original plan), we want to build a log home on it. The asking price for that old house is $102,000. Think of the plumbing, wiring, foundation, central heat and air, bathroom re-do's and kitchen update. We could build a new one pretty much for what all that would take and we'd have alot more land. Sooooo we probably won't go after this house I don't guess, but it sure is tempting! haha ....
Another thing about the old house is it is in a very small town, I mean really small so it's not like the housing market ever has or will boom there, so I thought the same thing, IF we bought it and fixxed it up, we may stuck with it forever. That could be bad or could be good.
Praise the Lord we are so close to being debt free other than my vehicle I got back in Nov. so we know we need to just take our time and not rush into anything.
